Guyanese police HARD at work: Ruimveldt police station
When I used to host lottery shows, one of the camera crew told me how their aunt was in Guyana’s police force and as their salary was minimal “she’d give herself a raise” meaning – go harass a citizen for a busted tail-light on their car or other imagined slight unless they pay her a fine directly to her pocket!
What the videographer never told me was how those Guyanese officers stored so much energy to go looking for
victims citizens who were potential transgressors, now we know…
This had to be a slow evening during the week, you know how it is on a weekend?
George phoned the police, who asked “Is someone in your house?”
He said “No,” but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.
Then the police dispatcher said “All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available.”
George said, “Okay.”
He hung up the phone and counted to 30.
Then he phoned the police again.
“Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now because I just shot them.” and he hung up.
Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at (their) residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to George, “I thought you said that you’d shot them!”
George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!“
